    Handling Setbacks with Aaron Leventhal

    I've heard from so many of you recently who have suffered a career setback in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic. So today, I wanted to feature someone whose career has also been hit hard by events. Commercial airline pilot turned heavy goods vehicle truck driver Aaron Leventhal shares his story of dealing with personal loss, managing career upheaval, and finding a way to pivot toward something else.



    During the Mental Fuel segment, I also share some examples of disappointing turns in my own career along with my three strategies of handling setbacks. If you’ve been dealt a blow in your own career for whatever reason, I hope you find this episode reassuring, inspiring, and most of all, a reminder that you’re not alone.

    Managing a Crisis with Liya Dashkina

    Managing a Crisis with Liya Dashkina

    After taking a brief break from hosting this podcast, I've decided to restart the show to feature a few stories of how people around the world are managing their professional lives amid the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, which has created tremendous upheaval and uncertainty not only in people's lives but also their careers. On today's show, financial controller Liya Daskina explains how she's been managing her transition after resigning from her role in the UK so she could move back to Australia only to now find herself in one of the most difficult hiring climates of our lifetime. We discuss how to manage uncertainty and make the most of a difficult time. After our chat, I share an update on how things have changed in my own life over the past few weeks and my perspectives on whether to wait until things blow over with the pandemic or act now to pursue your career ambitions.

I'll also describe how those who seem to have it all figured out in their careers are often still wrestling with their own struggles behind the scenes.

Ready for launch

Great podcast on all things related to your career!

Just the motivation I needed

I found this podcast through a quick Google search (I was specifically looking for podcasts to motivate me and suggest some tangible steps to change careers), and I’m so glad I did. Flash forward a few months, and I’ve launched a freelance business, including a website and three social media channels. I’ve also updated my resume and gathered work samples and am actively looking for a full-time job in my new industry. Joseph’s episodes are calming and motivating at the same time, and he gives concrete steps to reaching listeners’ career goals in each one.

Insightful and Inspirational!

I highly recommend Career Relaunch to everyone, whether you are considering a career change or not. Joseph has an amazing ability to distill the emotions (both good and bad) of his guests' experiences navigating their various changes in interests and careers. If you are looking for a mood boost and proof that we are not alone in our struggles in everyday life, you've found what you are looking for!
